This is a question First World Problems

Onemunki says: We live in a world of genuine tragedy, starvation and terror. So, after hearing stories of cruise line passengers complaining at the air conditioning breaking down, what stories of sheer single-minded self-pity get your goat?

Rehashed Pearoasted Rant.
People who complain they don't receive enough dole money to even live hand to mouth on, when they actually do receive decent money, and all they waste it on booze and fags etc, leaving them- surprise surprise- without enough cash for the basics.
Such persons then often turn futher towards the welfare state and force taxpayers to subsidize their irresponsible lifestyle even more handsomely.
Well, screw you buddy.
EDIT- This isn't a rant against the 90% of decent, work-hungry people on the welfare state, they are honorable social group. This is against the minority of people who knowingly waste their income and then try to push the consequences onto others. Anecdotally, everyone seems to know several people who could perfectly well but choose not to.

Eh, do the dole office give you money if you run out?
If I go on the dole with loads of credit card debt will they pay it back for me?
I'm not sure what you mean by "turn to the welfare state"?
Don't get me wrong I'm not happy about abuse of the welfare system, but I don't understand how you think it costs more to pay money to someone who spends their money on booze and fags rather that food.

Edit: is this a US thing?

No, he's just a Toryboy cock-end. Knows fuck-all about life yet.

Fuck off and come back when:
a: you've experienced some life therefore you have some idea about that which you speak of, and
b: you've stopped being a bell-end.

Why the fuck should FreeFair be the only person on here speaking sensibly about stuff he knows about?

I'll STFU.

You can rehash and repost all you want,
you're still going to be a naive, ignorant little child whose opinion is worthless and at best, laughed at. Stop posting until you've tried to support yourself single-handed.

I get the feeling he supports himself single handedly on a regular basis

I'm starting to think it could all be the gypsies' fault. I just watched a program where one of them was gonna eat a hedgehog.
I don't pay my taxes for him to go eating all the hedgehogs.

Are you going to keep deleting and then reposting your ill informed opinions
until you stop getting responses pointing out that your opinions are ill informed.

Shouldn't you be trolling the Guardian forums?
No, really. "force taxpayers to subsidize their irresponsible lifestyle" is pure gold.

Edit: I may have said this before, but anyone who thinks the welfare state is too generous, should be made to live on benefits for a year, on some shitty sink estate. Then, they/you can come back and tell us all how luxurious it was.

Having very recently been on benefits I feel this FreeFair person is a twat
Surly, begrudging petty hitlers in the Dole office threatening withdrawal of benefits or referral to a 'decision maker' EVERY TIME I SIGNED ON. Changing appointments specifically so I had to waste two hours before and an hour after due to bus timetables. Offers of warehouse work when I either couldn't get there or back due to aforementioned bus timetables. No help with either council tax or rent(they lost the forms - twice and said I had to apply again from the date I complained).
I had been paying the thick end of a grand deductions for the last five years and significantly more on occasion before that. My 'decent money' from the state for all this frickin' about - £67.50/week.

FreeFair - I hope you die slowly in poverty of a lingering agonosing and disfiguring disease you stupid fucking cretinous waste of blood and organs.
No offence

Well, this has converted me.
Had you been willing to forgo such luxuries as fags, booze, food, and housing, you could have lived like a king on £67.50/week.
You theiving scum. You're making my country shit.

The fags and booze were easy to give up
I'm still addicted to food however. I find that, after a three or four days of 'cold turkey' (Mmmmm turkey!) I have to get another 'fix' or 'meal' as some of my fellow addicts call them.
I dunno, I suppose I'm just weak-willed.

I'll bet you wear clothes, too.
Your massive sense of entitlement disgusts me.
(, Wed 7 Mar 2012, 9:51, closed)
I know, I'm sorry.
There's me doing all this eating and breathing without benefiting the state one iota. I should really have donated my body for live vivisection or donated my organs to support myself in the lavish plasma-screen, fast car, free 12-bedroom council house and KFC lifestyle of my fellow dole scum.

who paid for your net connection?

I got a deal for paying a year upfront
Only runs out next month

BTW I'm back in gainful employment
Thanks to the Germans - if I'd relied on the dynamism and forward-thinking of the British engineering sector to interview and employ me I'd have starved.

Having lived for a couple of years"on the jam roll"
*Both my missus and myself after our daughter was born - for different reasons & out of our control*
We paid our mortgage (fixed rate), paid all of our bills, fed our selves, clothed ourselves - including nappies for the bub (how un-PC of us!) & still found money so I could enjoy a beer (not my fave tipple but amber fluid non-the-less), the missus could enjoy a regular (not-quite-paint-stripper) wine. I smoke about a pack of cigs a week so we should include them.
We certainly didn't live like kings, but we survived. It can be done.
In my "working lifetime" so far I estimate I have paid about AUD$40,000 in taxes. My missus & I on benefits for just over a year & a half cost a little over $9000. We will be both "self-funded" retirees eventually.
Welfare works if you aren't addicted to a drug, over 35 with a family & mortgage or have mongy children.

What pissed me off about the nay-sayers here is the idea that a lot of them haven't had their job taken away from them (with little or no remuneration) and then had to go for even the shittiest of jobs to be turned down again & again.
If you work for a financial institution and aren't sucking the bosses cock then you could well be next.
Freefair however comes across as a silver-spooned bludger, fuck him.

Well I hate goblins and elves.

So are you the majority or the minority.
Come on, be honest.
